Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눇Great location (10 min by shuttle bus from Lipari harbor), beach, supermarket, restaurant down the road, beautiful view of Stromboli. Wonderful beach- clean and very quiet for Italy in July (one needs shoes due to volcanic stones but there are plenty of colorful fish just by the shore- the kids loved snorkeling and we loved the space!).

눇The receptionist in the mornings was very helpful and fun. She advised us where to go for a nice swim, arranged us the boat trip for a better deal than we would pay ourselves. Location is very cute and very relaxed. We stayed in Studio A, it had a cute little balcony with a view to sea

눉Aeolian islands are volcanic and therefore rise steeply from the water Pebble beaches drop away and for the less active may be difficult or in my case inelegant!! to get in and out of water Everything is up or down except along waterfront. Villetta is built into side of hill and breakfast room and pool is at top of hotel. Great views but many steps. Many local vehicles are noisy especially as they come up the hill. Didnt intrude in bedroom but sofa and balcony
눇Aeolian Islands definately worth a visit. Canetto on Lipari, less touristy, the long bay, clear water, village feel and friendliness everywhere, easy access to other islands and la Villetta proved to be a great choice. Room h had spacious bedroom, large queen bed, a comfortable sofa from which you could enjoy view over rooftops to bay as well as on balcony Breakfast was a a very sociable event. Being able to mix with others and share information and experiences was great. Continental style breakfast but range of provisions and cake,fruit and meats changed each day. Real coffee! Pool big enough to share and terrace areas to sit. Well equipped gym. Very happy customers 7 days not enough

눉The location is great re: proximity to the beach and amenities in Canneto-- but you are not in Lipari town and will need a car or the bus to get there. Not really a point against the Residence La Viletta, but was not clear to us from the listing.
눇The residence is very pretty and would probably be even nicer in the summer time. We visited at Easter and neither the pool or hot tub were open, but looked very nice and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and the room was comfortable with a great view of the coast.

눉It's a shame there isn't WiFi in the rooms and the breakfast could probably be improved slightly but was still certainly adequate
눇Paula on reception couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The location was fantastic for beaches, busses and canneto itself. The pool was also brilliant and everywhere around the hotel there is gorgeous landscaping with beautiful flowers.

눉The beds were hard but a standard in most all European hotels.
눇The location was great. Not far shuttle Or moped ride from the port. The bus stops down on the beach 100 yards away. There was a ard discount grocery right there too. The 1 bedroom was good size and the balcony looked out over the bay. The breakfast and the pool were nice too.

눉Pool a little on the small side and kitchen facilities very basic. But this is just pedantic, it is a lovely place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it.
눇Great terrace with beautiful views. Very friendly staff, and the breakfast is really good. Great family accommodation.

눇Great location, great staff. Would recommend it.
